Who’s who

This section contains brief biographies of the lexicographers, publishers and others involved with the OED who are mentioned on the EOED site, together with a list of sources as appropriate. Click on a name below to access this information. For details on other OED1 contributors, see Peter Gilliver’s annotated list on the OED Online website (originally put up in November 2007 and since updated [accessed 19 August 2019]).

We plan to add more biographies in the future. Many thanks to Helen Brookman for her research on the lives of Herbert Coleridge, Furnivall, Murray, Trench, and especially K. M. Elisabeth Murray.
